Fences Trailer

"You never done nothin' but hold me back, afraid I was gunna be better than you." Paramount has revealed a second trailer for the film Fences, directed by and starring Denzel Washington, adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name. This is one of the big awards films getting lots of good buzz. Washington starred in the Broadway version of the play, along with Viola Davis, and the two return for this cinematic version of this powerful story of a family in the 50s dealing with racial prejudice and poverty. Also stars Mykelti Williamson, Russell Hornsby, Saniyya Sidney, Stephen Henderson and Jovan Adepo. This looks like an emotionally strong, inspiring film with some of the best performances of the year.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Denzel Washington's Fences, direct from YouTube:

Fences Movie Poster

An African American father struggles with race relations in the United States while trying to raise his family in the 1950s and coming to terms with the events of his life. Fences is directed by American actor-filmmaker Denzel Washington, director of the films The Great Debaters and Antwone Fisher previously. The screenplay is written by August Wilson, adapted from his own play of the same name "Fences" - which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1987. It went on to play on Broadway at the Cort Theatre in 2010 in a limited engagement. The film has not premiered at any film festivals yet. Washington's big screen version of Fences arrives in theaters starting December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year. Looking forward to it?
